The Lakehead Law Journal is a refereed, open access journal that publishes articles, case comments, book reviews, and book notes on legal issues in Canada. The LLJ is run by an Editorial Team made up of both students and faculty, with Professor Tenille E. Brown serving as Editor-in-Chief.
Call for Submissions
The LLJ is pleased to invite submissions for our next issue. The LLJ fills a significant niche in the legal scholarship landscape by focusing on the following mandates: (1) Aboriginal and Indigenous legal issues; (2) rural, northern, and small firm practice; and/or (3) natural resources and environmental law.
We also publish papers that are shorter than typical academic articles. Our hope is that shorter pieces (7000 words) will be more accessible to busy lawyers and judges, making them more likely to be cited in judgments and play a part in shaping the law. We invite you to view our latest publication Volume 5 Issue 2
